I've wondered about that.  At the same time, I've not need that feature since moving over to the new server.  The old one was bad for loosing your post before it posted.

IE 6 asked once, IE 7 asks every time.  I like how 7 works and all but some things are just not registering.  Lately it keeps droping the cookies at certain forums I log into, like WR.  I usually don't notice till I go to post something and I get the "you need to be loged in" notice, keep in mind that was the first thing I did when I opened WR.  It's starting to get annoying, I might just take it out to the shop and have it out with it.  See what a few minutes on the lathe does to 7's attitude problem.

I can't think of a single reason why you should do this on your personal computer.

Well it sounded good in theory.


Honestly Babe, I don't know how it got stuck between the centers,  guess it's time for that new pc I've been bugging you about.

I agree with Ron.  Firefox has worked nearly flawlessly for me ever since installing it.  I imagine that those few hiccups that I've experienced were operator error.

After looking at Ron's link I looked to see what version I'm using.  Looks like it's time to upgrade.  Ron, you have a link for that?

Theres a link in that there post!



Once you install FireFox, it asks you if you want to import all your links and passwords from IE.

The transition is flawless.

I agree with Ron,
I love FF compared to IE a lot less trouble & as Ron said it automatically imports your bookmarks.

I was looking for an "Update" button.  Went ahead with the download and it did exactly what I was looking for.  Just another example of why Firefox is growing in usage so quickly.  And their claim that they run faster than IE?  You can bank the farm on it.

I misunderstood

On the top bar
Help > Check For Updates
or
Tools > Options > Advanced >Update Tab

As for speed, you bet, it will out run IE.

I also love the way you can customize FireFox
Tools > Addons   - When the window opens click on the link on the bottom right hand side the reads "Get Extensions"

Some of my Favorite and consider them essential
Tab Mix Plus (Not ready for ver. 3 yet)
BBCodeXtra
FireFTP
ImageZoom
TinyURL Creator

A few others that are nice
FlashBlock
DomainFinder
Tweak Network

I have a bunch more but these should get you started.
